Giveaway for your guy: Linksys wireless router +Linksys wireless media extender
Every so often, I like to let the men who wander over to this side of the interweb have a little fun.
And today’s giveaway is especially guy friendly (though totally perfect for anyone who loves their gadgets!).
A router is an often overlooked tech gift, but it’s the integral gadget that will connect all of the iPads, Blu-ray players, Xboxes and smartphones one could hope to own — especially as graduation time and Father’s Day comes around. ithout a router that gets them connected fast, and keeps them connected, they will never fully enjoy these gadgets.
Linksys Smart Wi-Fi EA6500 AC1750 router device is easy to setup — so easy I was able to! – lets you prioritize which devices get access to the most bandwidth, have high-quality security features, and allows you to manage, monitor and access media on your router using a mobile app for anytime, anywhere accessibility that can’t be found anywhere else. The WUMC710 Wireless Connector Bridge with 4-Point switch is something I didn’t even know I wanted until it came into my life. What’s a media bridge, you ask?
Well, it’s sort of the United Nations of gadgets.If you have a TV in one room and a wireless router in another and you want Internet access for your smart TV, but it doesn’t have built-in wireless connectivity, you can place a media bridge near that TV, connect the bridge wirelessly to the router, and then connect the TV to the bridge via an Ethernet cable. This will put the TV on your home network and bring it Internet access.
Complicated, I know. But it’s a pretty awesome concept. (Tech-geeks, if I’m explaining this wrong, feel free to comment below. It’d be appreciated!)
The wireless universal media connector can make any wired device a part of your wireless network. It’s optimized for streaming video and is ideal for wirelessly streaming or sharing music, photos, movies, and other files around the home. So, for someone that is planning a staycation this summer, this may be their new best friend. (Other than you, the person giving it to them.)
Here’s the exciting part: I’m giving away a bundle: Both the Linksys EA6500 router and the WUMc710 — a $400 value!
